Hi I am doing an assignment and I need to know if Tortoises can contract a notifiable disease.
A notifiable disease is a disease which you have to tell the UK Government about if your pet contracts it.

I'm not sure what diseases are considered reportable by the UK.

Two of the most common that I'm aware of that might be spread by tortoises, would be Salmonella and the parasite Cryptosporidium.

Thank you. I asked my lecturer today and she doesn't think there are any for the UK.
